    I've only read about these before but then a classic car dealer local to me got in contact over the weekendto say they had a very rare (1 of 6) Lamborghini motorbike coming in. Priced at £90,000, this is one for serious Lamborghini collectors only.

    Having checked it out, I have to say it’s pretty special..

    I’m very surprised by the lack of interest in this piece of Lamborghini history. I had no idea that during his ownership of Lamborghini, Patrick Mimran investigated Lamborghini selling superbikes alongside their supercars and this was the result. Lamborghini engaged a French company Boxer Design to design and build them a 4-cylinder, 130bhp superbike, with a cutting edge aluminium frame. Called the Design 90, only 6 production bikes were ever built and this one-owner example has only 7200km recorded and is number two of the six built.

    Surely that makes it an important piece of Lamborghini history?

    That they had a Japanese Kawasaki engine doesn't help, imo.

    Looks like they just put a body kit on a 1984-1986 Kawasaki ZX900 Ninja.....I think I'd rather have the Ninja.

    Reminds me of a Honda CBR1000. Doesn't compare to a Bimota SB6 for example, also with Jap engine, and fabulous.
